High Quality Cameras Are a Necessity in Good Video Surveillance

December 30, 2015

Why aren’t more businesses using cameras with high quality range to get faces when it’s sunny outside and shady inside? According to the AJC, this man swiped nearly $20K in Louis Vuitton bags from a Buckhead store.

The unidentified man entered the Bella Bag store in Buckhead around 11 a.m. Monday, Atlanta police said.

He was well-dressed, complete with a long tan coat and a fedora, when he walked into the Bella Bag store in Buckhead around 11 a.m. Monday, according to police.

But the man had no intention of actually buying anything. Instead, he grabbed six Louis Vuitton purses from the shelves and ran, even swinging one of the bags at a store clerk as he left.

Video surveillance cameras captured the man, who later got into a black sedan with tinted windows being driven by someone else. Now, Atlanta police would like to find the man who grabbed the purses, valued between $2,700 and $3,100 each, bringing the total to more than $19,000, including tax. Read more

Security Tips for Spring and Summer Community Surveillance

April 28, 2015

Spring is finally here, time to evaluate your common area surveillance needs.  Here are some things to keep in mind:

1)  Perform Your Own Security Audit First

Before meeting with a provider get together and recognize the issues that may be coming up, or those that have happened in the past that need addressing.  By knowing this up front it is very difficult for a provider to ‘upsell’ you on additional services.  Don’t be tricked into more than you need by a slick sales person.

2)  First Fix the Items You Can Fix

Lights, lights, lights….  If you have things that are not working, fix those initially if repair is within a reasonable cost.  If you have a security provider, put up signs and stickers. Simple steps will deter the casual mischievous individual.

3)  Be a Helper and a Tattletale

If you see something, tell someone.  Keep it noted for future use.  Ask a youth if you can help them, if they’re locked out of a pool (and if they live there).  Talk, listen and learn.

4)  Take Advantage of Technology

Do your research, talk to people, there are technologies out there that can ease the pain and help you both deter and catch your targets.  Onsite guards serve a purpose in certain guided situations but the cost for those guards is substantial.
